I picked my way through the debris and broken glass in Burgos this morning having played my part in the fun last night. Now into the serious business of walking across the Meseta. Gone are the beautiful flowing hills of Navarra and the endless vineyards of La Rioja. The Meseta is a never ending flat plateau, devoid of shade and with long gaps between villages. No more coffee and sandwich stops.
After pleasant temperatures in Burgos of 30 C, today was cool, windy and wet. Tonight’s hostel is new and decent and the 12 euro charge includes breakfast. I’ve booked the 7pm dinner for 9 euros which is salad, Paella and dessert plus wine and bread.
